Kailua-Kona

— 4 nights

Heart of the Kona Coast

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Get out of town with these interesting Kailua-Kona side-trips: Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (in Puako), Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (in Honaunau) and Hala Tree (in Captain Cook). The adventure continues: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, take in the awesome beauty at Mauna Kea, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mokuaikaua Church, and tee off at Mauna Lani Resort .

For reviews, photos, ratings, and tourist information, read our Kailua-Kona trip itinerary website.

New Orleans to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4 hours traveling from New Orleans to Kailua-Kona. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from New Orleans in September since evenings lows in Kailua-Kona dip to 76°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.

The Big Island
Aptly nicknamed the "Big Island," the Island of Hawaii features sunny, black-sand beaches on the western side by Kona and a tropical rain forest on the eastern by Hilo. In between, the massive mountain Maunaloa covers half the island, and Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, erupts continuously. Twice as large as all the other Hawaiian Islands combined, this big chunk of land in the Pacific manages to retain a laid-back atmosphere despite its immense popularity with tourists. Instead of spending your entire vacation at one of the island's luxurious tourist resorts, go on tours of this Pacific haven's coffee and macadamia nut plantations and working ranches, or explore its nature reserves and rugged trails.
